The Ritual Bidding Adieu to DragonCon: AKA, mmmm Brisket

DSC02591-Edit-EditAlas, the Council of Dragons has drawn to a close, which means that it is time anon to prepare the most royal of sacrifices, tender breast of Dragon. This ritual owes its roots to the deepest and most western territory of the kingdom and has been passed on through the generations to the latest great mage of sacrificial preparation, Aaron Franklinus of the wizarding tradition of central Texas.

The grand tome of preparation can be found in the mysterious Chronicles of YouTubus, presented by the high mage himself:

 

Breast of Dragon

The latest sacrificial breast of dragon rubbed with elvin spirit crystals and ground charred orc bones.

After carefully trimming the suet of the beastly villain, the Great Geektographer concocted the mixture of equal parts Elvin spirit crystals and coarsely ground, charred Orc bones, which the Great Geektographer hath deftly applied to the dragon’s flesh, setting it aside to cure.

In the meantime, the Geektographer built a fire in his colossal verdant furnace, using coals from the very tree that birthed

Thorin’s mighty Oakenshield. The dragon’s flesh has become tough through years of guarding his golden stash and marauding the nearby villages. It must therefore rest in the colossal verdant furnace for no less than half of the rotation of Middle Earth.

At the appointed time the preparer of the Dragon sacrifice will remove the beast’s now tender flesh from the colossal verdant furnace and combine it with stewed dragon’s blood, serving it to those who keep faith in the magical power of feasting.DSC06194
Thus endeth the ritual of the Dragon Feast at the close of the Annual Council of Dragons. In the days and weeks to come, a full account of the 2014 Council of Dragons will appear. Until then, nom nom nom nom nom nom.
